User story: Read an example of a Leadership Development program

A future-focused strategy to enhance leaders, identify aspirant leaders
and leverage teacher expertise to improve student learning.

A network in Melbourne comprising of primary and secondary schools engaged Pearson Schools Consulting Services to help them in improving their leadership capacity.

Through a collaborative process, we conducted a User Needs Analysis to identify critical needs and success factors. The analysis uncovered additional challenges and so the program encompassed not only enhancing the capacity of the network’s Principals, but also included aspirant leader development and professional learning that presented strategies for future-focused network wide change.

The implemented program offered a bespoke combination of various delivery modes, and individual and team assessments to foster personal growth and team collaboration both within and across the network schools.
